    Introduction The Wada test has been the gold standard for testing cerebral language localisation during presurgical investigation in the past decades. However, during the last few years a shift has occurred in epilepsy surgery programmes towards the use of non-invasive methods, predominantly...

    Anosognosia for hemiplegia is a common and striking disorder following stroke. Because it is typically transient and variable, it remains poorly understood and has rarely been investigated at different times in a systematic manner. Our study evaluated a prospective cohort of 58 patients with...

    Phantom limb pain is a painful sensation that is perceived in a body part that no longer exists, which was postulated to occur due to visuo-proprioceptive dissociation. One therapeutic approach that has the potential to temporarily resolve this visuoproprioceptive dissociation is mirror therapy,...

    Objective: To review the frequency, clinical correlates, and mechanism of anosognosia after stroke. Methods: We searched the most recent relevant literature on anosognosia after stroke and carried out a critical analysis of the main findings. Results: Anosognosia is present in about 10% of acute...

    The main aim of this study is to test the reliability and validity of the UMAS Questionnaire to evaluate anosognosia for hemiplegia (AHP) and anosognosia for hemianaesthesia (AHA). Anosognosia is the unawareness or underestimation of a specific deficit in sensory, perceptual, motor, affective or...

    We describe the clinical manifestations and the lesion patterns of five patients with somatoparaphrenia, the denial of ownership for a paralyzed limb, who showed the rare dissociation from anosognosia for hemiplegia. Similar cases have been only occasionally cited in the literature with scanty...

    Although high levels of phantom recollection (illusory vivid experience of the prior 'presentation' of unpresented items) have been found for false recognition, little is known about phantom recollection in recall. We examined this issue with Deese/Roediger-McDermott lists using two paradigms:...

    Objectives To confront motor awareness in anosognosia for hemiplegia (AHP), where paralyzed patients deny their motor impairment, and in motor neglect (MN), where non-paralyzed patients behave as if they were paretic. Methods Eight right-brain-damaged-patients, 4 hemiplegic (2 with and 2 without...
